Good Book For Florida Travel
By Mike Miller
This book takes a very good stab at listing some of the hundreds of museums and cultural attractions in Florida. It is a good guide to keep in the glove compartment of your car as you travel across the state.
I have a Florida heritage and cultural travel based website and have found the information in this book to be very useful, and offer a link to Amazon on my website - [...] for travelers interested in purchasing it.
